Over the years there have been some experiments in truck design. This has included plastic baseplates, extra metal added to the hanger, and a roller instead of the standard solid metal.
I've learned from doing this website that truck choice is up there with politics and religion as topics to avoid in polite conversation to prevent unnecessary arguments. And with that I'm saying nothing else.
Speaking of trucks, did anybody watch the video by the owner of Theeve Trucks? It had 30 tricks on vert for his 38th birthday. Trevor Ward was not messing around.
I scanned a bunch more stuff than there are days in the week so there will be Vert Is Dead this Saturday. Next Monday will start two or three weeks of clearing out the hard drive to go with a couple of other things. Don't worry, it's all good stuff. There will also be a week of women skateboards sometime soon. I'm working on it.
